BASEBALL’S OUTRAGEOUS SALARIES

Feedback is more than welcome! What do you like, what don’t you like. I can always tweak this to make it “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger”

I fell asleep to “Paramore” the album “Riot!”

I exercised to “Anthrax” 15 albums on shuffle

Yep it’s on Facebook if you prefer.

Baseball players can make more money in 1 year than any their fans will make in a lifetime without winning the lottery! A starting pitcher, who plays every 5 days, will make $31,000,000 this year & again next year & that’s top salary so far???????????????? A mediocre starting pitcher will make $10,000,000 or roughly that amount. I’m bad with money, if I have it, it will be gone in 5 minutes! I couldn’t find the purpose to spend over $2,000,000 in my lifetime. I could spend it, but not justify what I’d purchased?????? How on earth is an athlete going to spend $62,000,000+??????????????

Edwin is back with “I Mother Earth” & Brian’s out due to scheduling difficulties, fair enough. They’re celebrating the 20th anniversary of the album “Scenery & Fish” that Edwin recorded with them. I’ll miss Brian though, quite a bit!

Here are my 4 favourite songs by I Mother Earth! 2 from each singer. One song from each album in order of release.

Chad Smith, drummer for Red Hot Chili Peppers, & doppelganger Will Ferrell team up for charity.

All it says on the “Opeth” Facebook page is “Opeth 2016”?

16 years ago “Disturbed” released their album “The Sickness”. 13 or 14 years ago I bought it. I’m not in my 20s anymore. Hind sight is 20/20.

I’ll take this cover or the original thanks.

Finger Eleven shared it…….

Mitch & Jordan were in a rock band camp/program offered by Long & McQuade while I was working at the Staples Call Center. They wanted me to sing 2 songs live with them. I had to get off work early & rushed to the Exchange one afternoon where they were playing live at the end of their week long program.

Saturday, April 23rd “I Mother Earth” canceled at Casino Regina

I tend to agree that technology is affecting us for better & worse. You really don’t have to remember anything. If you can’t figure out something everyone goes right to the phone in your pocket. Long debate but worth the watch.

I wonder why vehicles today have blue tooth. Use blue tooth if you have to answer a phone call or make a phone call. Remember, it works as a phone, not just a text or email machine. It could save multiple lives. Too late for this girl unfortunately.

I’ve never worn ear plugs through an entire concert. I’d start with them in & take them out after 1 or 2 songs, just couldn’t hear the high notes. Yes, I’m all but deaf in my right ear. These might work though.

Stone Sour shared it. Yes I own it!

I was just burning a couple of rare albums that I bought very early in 2001 or 2002 when they were released. A couple of friends would like them but missed out & now they’re out of print & not on iTunes or anywhere else. I’m pretty sure that’s legal. You could trade tapes, vinyl, CDs, etc. Now it’s a bit more difficult with iTunes. I guess I could go on a streaming music site for a while & burn the music I like on to a CD if I believed in free music?

I guess Sam Smith lost his voice. He’s “better now” & can speak. He’s rescheduled his tour.

Fantastic Barenaked Ladies album

You can hear it buried in the mix! Both guitar solo & vocal guitar solo.

Yep, there are groups/solo artists I don’t like. I either just flat out don’t them or “…if they play the same 3 chords, I just yawn & say WOO HOO HOO! It’s all been done….”

You can pre-order the Lamb of God CD from their website or pre-order it with some merchandise as well.

Jack White has been inducted to the ‘Nashville Walk of Fame’
http://consequenceofsound.net/2015/06/jack-white-inducted-into-nashvilles-walk-of-fame/

My iTunes has 1362 albums including my 3 pre-orders coming this month. Just waiting for more pre-orders & release dates. That includes roughly 300/half of my CDs. Half of those albums are on my iPod & the other half are on my iTunes. We pay $27.00/year for iTunes match. With that, my computer does not have to be on & we can listen to all of our music through our receiver/amplifier.
“…I don’t wanna brag, I don’t wanna boast….”

Songs I like! “In Search of Sun”
